I'd like it if the achievements worked in Impulse(or Steam, if they accept the game) and Raptr. It'd be awesome. Good work.

Default Dungeon Names

Here, I've attached several hundred. I actually had a thousand in the file, but it was bit bigger than the allowed attachment size.

Obviously, I just threw dungeony-sounding words together at random, and I didn't even check for duplicates, so there might be some. But this little exercise got me thinking: How is Din's Curse generating dungeon names now? Are they pulled randomly from a list, or randomly generated, like the list I just created?

But then I had a REALLY interesting thought: What if the dungeon names were, at least partially, procedurally generated based on the world modifiers? Like the way that items are named. So, in much the way that a sword which does fire damage and adds to your strength might be called a "Fiery Sword of Might", a dungeon in a world that has lots of rain and undead could be called the "Haunted Dungeon of Floods" or something.

Not terribly fond of "<adjective> <location> of <adjective>" names myself, they sound a little too bland to me. Something about just one descriptor sounds so much better to me when I read it.

Oh, and I too had been thinking names based on world modifiers or the tileset of the dungeon would be nice, but again, I think I'd prefer full dungeon names from a list (which I think is the current system of naming) than randomly generated, and certain entries in that list might have qualifiers like "only available with Undead worldmod."

True. It just SCREAMS "randomly generated name", doesn't it?

One thing I thought would be nice would be to work a random proper noun into that final spot sometimes. So, "Deadly Caverns of Gazuul", or whatever. Or maybe even stick the town name in there.
